Do you know how to sleep better? I think my insomnia fight started in college when learning how to fall asleep was always a struggle. From late night studying for tests to staying up until 3-4:00 am in the morning working on architecture projects, it seems sleep and I have never been friends! As I’ve gotten older and now that I work from home, learning how to sleep better is a constant challenge. This is why I’m excited to pair with the National Sleep Foundation to share information about a helpful resource: BeyondTired.org. Take a look at how you can start a conversation with your doctor about your sleeping habits and how it is affecting your daily life.
How to sleep better with resources and information about insomnia
I was glad to see that I’m not alone in my issues with sleeping. Many people have problems falling asleep, while others have problems staying asleep (which is my issue). Even if I go to bed later, my eyes open about 4- ½ hours later and I’m ready to get up, despite the fact I’m still tired. If you take a look at the Sleep Resource website it helps you find out which disorders you may have, as well as helpful ways to bring the discussion up with your doctor.
Common sleep disorders include:
- Sleep Apnea
- Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorders
- Excessive Daytime Sleepiness Disorders
I finally sleep better with their ‘Bedroom Environment Tips:
After reading through the helpful resources from Beyond Tired I loved the ’Bedroom Environment’ tab in the menu. It helps you use your 5 senses to ensure you get a good night’s sleep.
Under the “Touch” category I already found an area that could help: ‘Shivering and sweating at night. ‘ – Living in Florida it is always a challenge to know when it will be too hot or your air conditioning is on too high and in turn leaves a freezing bedroom. We’ve been experimenting with setting the thermostat a little cooler on warmer nights and vice versa for a sounder sleep… Seems to be working! 🙂
Check out the Bedroom Environment tab beneath ‘Sleep Topics’ to see what you learn!
